Applications are now being accepted for the 16th International Course on Integrated Mangrove Ecosystems Management, to be held from 27 November to 10 December 2016 at the Centre of Advanced Study in Marine Biology, Annamalai University, India.
The deadline for applications is 31 October 2016.
Since 2004, the UNU Institute for Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH) has been supporting this annual two-week training course in collaboration with the UNESCO Man and Biosphere programme and Annamalai University (India), where the course is organised and held. The South Asia Co-Operative Environment Programme (SACEP) became a partner in 2011.
The course aims to build the capacity of professionals and institutions in developing countries to undertake monitoring, research, and conservation of mangrove forests. This is achieved through training in the scientific methodology and teaching of the latest research work on related subjects. A secondary objective is to create a network of professionals working with mangroves.
